In this talk I will outline a topic that has been of interest due to its applicability in physics and engineering. The so called small noise model is a very technical subject that lies in the center of probability theory and usually study thorough a large deviations approach. I will explain this terminology and why is the correlation with dynamical systems so strong. Recent developments will be given at the end if time allows.
